Best Photography Website Builders 2018 (For Business or Pleasure!)

Welcome! Just before we jump into things, I’d first like to address the “elephant in the room”.

Old fashioned camera sat on a wooden tripodI’m not a photographer. There, I said it!

But…I do know a thing or two about do-it-yourself website software.

With that in mind, I’ve spent the last few weeks “in-the-trenches” reviewing the best photography site builders that the internet has to offer.

My goal was to help you find the ultimate, one-size-fits-all solution that I could recommend to all of my readers and be safe in the knowledge you’d all have exactly what you’re looking for.

Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find it.

Don’t get me wrong, the website builders mentioned throughout this article are fantastic but as with everything in life, they each come with their own set of pros and cons.

Best 2 Website Builders For Bands & Musicians (Yep, Just The 2!)

As a lover of both classic and modern rock, there’s nothing I like more than going to watch a band in my local area on a Friday evening.

Concert scene with brights lights covering the stage and silhouettes of fans in the foregroundI have my favorites and while I subscribe to their Facebook pages to stay up to date, you’d be surprised as to how few actually have their own website.

I actually find it a little frustrating…

I want to be able to browse their site, learn about their history, influences, about the musicians themselves and maybe even purchase their albums.

These are just a few advantages of having your own website. It’s a place to build your brand and somewhere to call (digital) home.

With that in mind, I rolled up my sleeves and spent hours testing various website builders and came up with what I believe to be the best platforms to help you achieve it as quickly, and as easily as possible.

The other day a friend asked me if he needed to register his website as a business or with a local authority before going live and I’m sure there must be other people out there wondering the same.

Bandwidth & Storage Explained (In Layman’s Terms)

When I first started creating websites, bandwidth and storage were two things that I really struggled to get my head around, maybe like you are now.

Movie tickets and a box of popcorn on it's sideAnd do you think I could find a simple explanation anywhere online?

Nope!

Yet each time I tried to sign up with a particular hosting company or website builder, I was supposed to choose which plan suited me best even though I didn’t have a clue what they meant.

It turns out, that choosing the correct amount of bandwidth and storage is just like owning your own movie theater (at least in my head anyway), let me show you what I mean.

The Best Website Builders For Your Church Website (2018 Edition)

Let me start by offering you a warm welcome.

Church seating areaThe last thing I wanted this article to be was just a long list of all the church website builders that I could find.

Too many options with a superficial, generic write up of each wouldn’t be helpful to you.

In fact, it could quite easily lead to procrastination or “paralysis-by-analysis” and you’d be no better off than before you arrived.

To avoid this, I’ve spent the last two days with my sleeves rolled up actually testing out church and ministry-specific website builders.

Out of the seven or eight platforms I tried, these three stand head-and-shoulders above the competition (in my humble opinion of course).

Now we just have to take a look at the pros and cons of each platform to find the best fit based on your technical abilities, requirements, and of course, budget.
